Any time that the item description text is something like "fghdyj", I immediately become suspicious (for some reason).

I have seen quite a few fraudulent ebay listings like this lately, and not just on phones, but ebay makes is just about impossible to report them.  I would expect that after loosing several million dollars on this scam that they might decide to start trying to do something about it.
